AmiSight 8/25: Could a Heat Wave Create the Next Supply Chain Crisis
I recently read an interesting article that a heat wave in China could cause more disruptions to its supply chains than Covid-19.
In Sichuan, a regional manufacturing powerhouse that is home to more than 80 million people, the record heat wave has exacerbated an ongoing drought, cutting water levels at hydropower reservoirs in half this month. In short, energy supplies are running short.
This concern is just another reminder that we must always be as prepared as possible for the unexpected.
